($290; 69% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot) Bright, deep ruby. Knockout nose combines black cherry, game, smoke, violet and menthol; wonderfully expressive but serious in the way of a Left Bank Bordeaux. The palate boasts outstanding sweetness with lift, displaying terrific definition to the dark fruit, mineral, licorice and menthol flavors. A wine of outstanding dimension and great inner-mouth verve. The longest and juiciest of these 2007s, with a slowly building, rising finish that's rare for California wine. Winemaker Tauziet noted that the 2007s were bottled a bit later than usual "as they stayed so fresh in barrel." She added that some 2007 lots were never racked until the bottling.

Decanted for two hours before tasting. A deep almost black color with a huge nose of blue and blackberries beautifully integrated tannins with an incredible long 60 second finish. An incredible wine too be drunk now and over the next twenty or more years. This wine built to last for many years.
